|I SWEAR, THESE BABIES LOOK JUST LIKE THE REAL ONES IN CHURCH TODAY|
One baby was a beautiful, black-haired angel, a little girl, and the other was a sandy-haired little hunk, a little boy. The female wore a white lace dress and white lace bonnet, and the boy wore little dress-up pants and shirt.
And now, I see them standing before the altar, she with her "raven" black hair and he with his dark blonde hair, both dressed for their wedding.Stop! I cannot move them right into matrimony. Every couple must go through the fire, so to speak, and emerge strong and determined that no one or no earthly entity can break them apart.
Hmmm, what conflict can I hoist upon them? Every romance novel must have a huge conflict between the two prospective lovers. Right? The service ended before I moved very far along with my outline.You can be sure, though, that my story will be: Girl meets boy at Baptismal font in their diapers and baby clothes and fall in love; Boy loses Girl, maybe due to something stupid he did, or maybe an outside force tore them apart; and then Boy gets Girl back, and they Live Happily Ever After.
Writing a romance novel is so easy, a child can do it. Right? I bet you've heard that many times-- a romance novel plot is just too simplistic. Oh, but the fun of it all is creating a scenario that will push them apart, and then find an emotional, satisfying way to bring them together at the end.I can hardly wait to begin my next novel.
